Update: This blog has been completely retired and can no longer be viewed, even at the WordPress address.
After nine and a half years, 1,150 posts, and 5,220,000 site views, Mysterious Heartland is finally closing its doors. Well, you’ll still be able to see the archives at trueillinoishaunts.wordpress.com (its original name). It’s no secret posting has been sparse over the past couple of years. As I moved out of the Midwest, I wanted to focus on more generalized travel writing and photography. People seemed to just come to Mysterious Heartland for the top 10 lists anyway, and there’s only so many of those you can write.
Thank you for your readership and patronage over the years. I hope you enjoyed reading that website as much as I (once) did in creating it.
